We would like to thank the Spanish Army for having opened its doors to us and for having made available to us all the resources, technical and human resources so that the conference could be carried out, demonstrating the high level of our Armed Forces at all levels.
We would also like to express our immense gratitude to all the sponsors, collaborating companies, colleagues and friends who, once again, gave their all so that everything could go ahead.
